hits trending so often, and I never know what it's about, but every time I see it I think "why are ventriloquists giving lectures on Fedi?"

What part of federation determines what gets shown and what doesn't? I can be following someone and only some of their posts will come through to Fosstodon, others require looking at the original profile, and even searching for them specifically here reveals nothing.

It can't be censorship because the same thing was happening when I had my own instance with no federation locks or bans, so what gives?

Is the problem specifically about Mastodon x Pleroma interaction?

@thenewoil How is it spread. That's what I want to know, and the article doesn't say. Anything special that should be done besides not clicking shady links.

@fristi I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Mastodon, is in fact, ActivityPub/Mastodon, or as I've recently taken to calling it, ActivityPub plus Mastodon. Mastodon is not a social network unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning ActivityPub system made useful by the ActivityPub webfingers, inboxes and vital system components comprising a full social network as defined by W3C.

@anubis2814 Perfect examples of causation: The animals caused all this damage.

@markusl I don't know if it's DE-specific. I'm running Linux Mint with Cinnamon.

TIL that pressing down the mouse wheel on the top bar of a window makes it go to the bottom of the stack, showing all the other windows on top of it. Pretty neat, I wonder how many other obscure shortcuts there are.

@kumicota Doesn't the FBI host several websites with CP to lure in potential offenders? Or just generally detecting them by scanning through hashes of images in the database.

That's all I can think of as to the purpose of this application, because "store photos so that they're at hand if you need them" applies to literally any and all photo galleries and file managers.

@chjara Seeing this on my feed makes me want to go on a follow purge or just delete the account altogether.
